COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long days and warm nights awaken the city. The list of neighborhood festivals is endless. As is the great music that brings us together in parks and parking lots. We brewed our Session IPA to be easy drinking and endlessly refreshing, so you can enjoy every encore. Bright note of fresh oranges and other citrus fruit with a mild body that is crisp on the palate.

Admin Note: Although this is similar to Forcone, Goose Island assures me this beer is a different recipe for large scale release in 2014 evolved from that original batch for Pitchfork Music Festival 2013.

12oz bottle pours a clear golden amber with a thick pillow head that dissipated quickly with nice lacing. Aromas of dank, Mary Jane, citrus, spruce, floral, resin, and clove. Flavor is medium bitter with a peppery finish. Nice.

can. Poured clear amber with a rocky white head. Big orange citrus aroma. Light-medium body, active carbonation, quick refreshing finish. Flavour is sweet and citrusy, notes of wheat malts and bitter citrus peel, bold hops but not over powering.

FounderMerlin (1) - - AUG 1, 2016 does not count
Poured from can. Golden to slightly brown. Thin head. Light, fresh, lightly fruity aroma - citrus. Taste very close to aroma, heavy on the citrus for a moment. Balanced bitterness. Little palate. Very light & refreshing IPA. Nothing special but very enjoyable in summer heat.

Nothing objectively bad about this session IPA but it's kind of boring. Pours a bright dark yellow with not much head but some nice lacing. Crisp aroma. Weak on the tongue. Some hops but it's mild for an IPA. Nice pleasant finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light gold. Has a slightly citrusy hop nose. Light pale malts and there’s a floral citrusy element. Ok IPA

Can: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy and fruity hops is quite nice ne enticing. Taste is a nice mix of juicy and citrusy hops with some light dry notes and minimal bitterness. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed APA with great flavours and balance.
